House of Representatives Debates the 25th Amendment | LIVE | NowThis

HOUSE DEBATES THE 25TH AMENDMENT: The House of Representatives is debating a resolution urging VP Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Pres. Trump from office in light of last week’s domestic terrorist attack at the U.S. Capitol. Brought forward by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), the resolution calls on Pence to ‘immediately use his powers under section 4 of the 25th Amendment to convene and mobilize the principal officers of the executive departments in the Cabinet to declare what is obvious to a horrified nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties of his office.’ If passed, Speaker Pelosi has said that Pence has 24 hours to respond—after the time is up, the House is expected to move forward with impeachment, with a vote as soon as tomorrow evening. Just hours ago, Rep Liz Cheney (R-WY), the third-highest ranking Republican in the House, announced that she would vote in favor of impeaching Trump, saying that ‘there has been never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.’
